Welcome to Parque Natural de Montesinho


The 750-sq-km Parque Natural de Montesinho was established to protect the area’s 88 lean villages as much as their natural setting. This harsh, remote terra fria (cold land) inspired early Portuguese rulers to establish a system of collective land tenure and then leave the villagers to their own devices, allowing for a remarkably democratic, communal culture, which persists today.
